Arthrex AR-1351B Bio-Transfix Pin 40 mm x 5 mm PLLA Bioabsorbable Material
Part # AR-1351B Exp 10/13, 2/13
The Arthrex AR-1351B Bio-Transfix Pin 40 mm x 5 mm provides maximum pull-out strength while maintaining fast and efficient implantation methods. The amorphous PLLA material is radiolucent and absorbs in 3 to 5 years. Increased graft compression in the femoral tunnel gives a secure transverse femoral fixation second to none. The implant is impacted to securely fixate the graft in place.
Arthrex AR-1351B Bio-Transfix Pin 40 mm x 5 mm cross fixation provides the strongest femoral fixation of any bioabsorbable implant available for soft tissue or bone-tendon-bone grafts. With single cross pin fixation for soft tissues, the length and load to all graft strands are equalized independent of tibial fixation, maximizing graft stiffness. For bone-tendon-bone grafts, the same single 3 mm drill hole in the bone dowel is used to both transport the graft and fix it in place, leaving the rest of the bone intact.
In Perfect sealed condition but past expiration date. Not for human use in the US.
Expiration dates have mostly to do with sterilization and not the integrity of the product. The manufacturers sterilize the products after they are packaged and it lasts so many years. The only products we caution customers about are ones that are absorbable or drug coated.
This is an absorbable item.
